Mexican Spiced Tortellini Salad

I had this box of spinach and ricotta cheese tortellini in pantry for quite time and never had time to use up. Before kids used to eat that so I store it, one day they changed their taste buds and minds and declared that they no longer wanted to eat this so it’s only me in family left with to use up cause hubby due to his health cant consume premade stuff. So one Sunday when they declared they wanted to eat healthy mac n cheese, I saw again that box in pantry and I just took it out, thinking will put it in same sauce as kids pasta and have it. But when I was making kids pasta thought to change my dish somewhere and instead of putting it in Italian spices , decided to put it in Mexican spices. Taste wonderful and even my son who told me he is not going to eat , had it, I just had it with regular vegetables and spices but to make it true Mexican salad you can add black beans, corn, avocado along with Mexican spices. I used spinach and ricotta stuffed tortellini , you can use 3 cheese or if you fancy make your own.

Ingredients

½ packet of dry tortellini
½ each red , green capsicum
½ onion, I cut it in match stick but cut it in cubes its easy to eat
1 small carrot cut
2 cloves of garlic
1 or ½ as per your taste jalapenos finely chopped
1 tsp. paprika powder
1 tsp. Garlic powder
Salt and black pepper as needed
1 tbsp. Taco seasoning
Lime juice as per taste
1 tbsp. olive oil

Method:

Boil the tortellini as per the package directions and keep it aside.
Chop all the ingredients and put it in big bowl. Add all the spices in it and mix it too.
When tortellini is done, put it in with vegetables & Spiced mixture.
Mixed gently so it’s doesn’t break up.
Sprinkle lime juice on top and serve it in serving bowl.
Delicious and quick salad is ready to eat.
